"The Adjustment" 

The brief for this commissioned piece was to accurately capture the moment of the Chiropractic adjustment.
Here we see Dr Stanley Bolton,
President of the Australian Chiropractic Association,
adopting the pose from which the sculpture was to be taken.

This picture shows the final sculpture,
as a work cast in bronze. The cast is taken from a
wax model which is a remarkable substance
allowing for extensive detail.
The Doctor's hands in the final piece show fine features such as hair,veins and distinguishing marks on the arms and fingers.

The rod supporting the sculpture in fact
forms part of the science of the work.
A chiropractic adjustment follows specific
angles of force, and this is depicted here by the
supporting rod, which itself hits the
base from which concentric rings
of energy are shown as displaced.

The difficulty with this commission was not so much in the accurate rendition of the Doctor's hands,
but to have the piece appear to thrust into the base.
Then, having achieved this, there was
the concern for how the arms
would be finished so as not to appear
as chopped off.

This piece represents an amalgam of artistic, scientific
and reproductive forces.
~ Buy direct and save ~ 

Subtracted from the market retail price of Robert's art are the cost of the frame and his art dealer's commission when purchased directly from the studio.  Therefore, a market value price of $760 yields a discount so that you pay only $390 unframed.  In "market" terms, you are buying straight from the producer without packaging costs.  In this way, you receive the benefits and the market "retail" (investment) value is maintained.
On more expensive works, the savings are considerable.  It is the best way to buy art.
